their message in the wake of the storm but that could change today with five days left president obama goes back on the campaign trail with events in wisconsin, nevada and colorado. governor romney arrives in virginia a day after an event in another battleground state. >> mitt romney campaigned in florida wednesday but during his three rallies he never once mentioned president obama by name. >> i understand what it takes to get this country going again. and to bring back the kind of greatness we depend on. >> he refrained from an all out attack on the president who was visiting with disaster victims in new jersey. instead romney made his own pitch to help those affected by the storm. >> if you have the ability to help please provide some resources to people there and give calls to your loved ones and keep folks in your thoughts and prayers. it's a big part of what america is. >> the romney campaign ended up back pedalling wednesday over remarks he made about disaster relief funding. at a republican primary debate last year romney down played the federal government's role in disaster response. >>
wins florida and virginia president obama wins ohio, then can romney wins a state that obama won by 14 points. >> paul ryan is very popular in wisconsin. >> there three things. state changed between 2008 and 2010 that helped walker. then a huge battle over walker's plan. the recall effort forced republicans to build a great organization that has been turned over to the presidential campaign. polls are very close. paul ryan is added to the particular. nationally biggest thing he made people more enthusiastic about the ticket. in wisconsin, if the republicans pull it off, he may provide that little bit. >> sean: let's assume, we don't know what is going to happen in ohio. i would lean that ohio, i'm counting on ohio, but i think it will be close. if governor romney did win wisconsin and favored in colorado's colorado and you have new hampshire. >> new hampshire has a huge pool of independents. the independent voters swinging in romney's direction. >> a chance in iowa? >> he has a chance in iowa for the same reasons he does in wisconsin. pennsylvania and michigan and minnesota is possible
's begin by putting those states back in the obama column here for a minute. and i will explain. so that is at 243. the issue is this, you have the romney campaign believing virginia and florida is theirs. they really do believe they will r win colorado. if you moved iowa, new hampshire, and wisconsin over to there, hiohio is the one in pla. it could put either one of them over the top. it could put romney at 275 or it could put obama at 281. let's say you believe you can't win ohio if you're the mitt romney campaign. you have to take away 12 electoral votes from him. well, boy, pennsylvania, you could steal that. look at how that would change the map. and that would given you more. but pennsylvania is not going to work, well, how about the state of your birth. if you couldn't take michigan, again, you could change the math. boy, did they take a long time to mess with that. i'm going to give them more credit. there is a republican super pac laying the groundwork in minnesota for months called the american future fund, it's a bunch of folks mostly out of iowa but they've been pouring
. >> geraldo: erin, quickly, i've got 30 seconds, florida has romney over obama by 1 1/2, more or less. virginia has romney obama tied. ohio has obama over romney 48 funny 2 to 46.3, wisconsin has obama over romney by 2.3 percentage points so ladies and gentlemen, erin says that the governor is on track to win the popular vote, but as of right now, the president looks likes he's ahead in the electoral college. we have to take a break and we'll continue our special coverage of the storm, and the political storm and a bit later benghazi-gate. don't go anywhere, the wind is beginning to pick up here in manhattan. 4g lte is the fastest. so, which supeast 4g lte service would yochoose, based on this chart ? don't rush into it, i'm not looking for the fastest answer. obviously verizon. okay, i have a different chart. going that way, does that make a difference ? look at verizon. it's so much more than the other ones. so what if we just changed the format altogether ? isn't that the exact same thing ? it's pretty clear. still sticking with verizon. verizon. more 4g lte coverage than all other
by ahead in florida, north carolina, as we do now, we had obama a little bit ahead in virginia, colorado, hi owe, ohio,ohio as we do no so there has been a lot of tumult in this race up and down, but, you know, we live in a country where easily 90 percent of voters are going to make hair decision just based on which party the candidate belong to, then like the debates and the conventions, democrats who probably were never going to vote for romney uh but were not ready to split to obama, a good speech by obama and michelle and bubye-bye den and they come on board. >> rose: that the did not give them as much of an advantage as they expected? >> i don't know, given that you only had eight percent of undecided voters then and the democratic leaning ones and romney gets his share after a good debate in denver there is evidence by the way rom in i made more gains -- >> rose: but were all of those people who went to romney after in terms of polling, after the denver debate, were they people that were in an undecided column or were they people who were leaning to, say, the president? >> so more
in tampa, florida. and then it was president obama touring coastal new jersey and comforting victims of hurricane sandy, while mitt romney was holding what he called a big victory rally outside miami. and while the romney campaign made sure to have their most telegenic staffers say on camera today that they were going to avoid any partisan commentary today out of respect for the storm victims, they said they were going to avoid any partisan attacks on president obama on this very serious day, they said they would do that, but they apparently really did not mean it, because at a rally in wisconsin today, they had the republican party chairman talking about how america needs to fire barack obama, and saying that the battle to defeat president obama is a battle for this country's freedom. at a rally with mitt romney in florida today, they had that state's former republican governor, jeb bush, talking about president obama as a failure, his failure to bring this country together. at the same event, we had a republican state congressman tell parents that they should threaten to take hallo
in florida if he's going to win. so that is a pretty hefty tag to run up. that's all according to the obama campaign. in iowa over a third of voters have already voted there. and among those early voters, you can see 64% of those are supporting barack obama. 35% of them are supporting mitt romney. and that means that mitt romney is going to need to win 59% of election-day voters. in north carolina, nearly half of all ballots have already been cast. and of those who have already been cast, 58% of those early voters favor the president. 41% of those favor mitt romney. so mitt romney is going to need to win 57% of north carolina on election day. we're seeing that pattern play out in the other swing states, too like nevada, virginia, wisconsin. so the republicans are trying to make up ground. in florida we're seeing this because republican leaders are on a two-day bus tour promoting early voting. here is romney florida campaign chairman adam putnam. >> we want to drive people to the polls in every conceivable form. we want oh to be there on tuesday and early votes and we want to open that gap b
three campaign stops yesterday. today he'll focus on virginia. in florida he toned down his message. he didn't even mention president obama as he spoke to voters in jacksonville last night and said he was criticizing the administration's record on small business. governor ejeb bush did talk abot the president and talked about some of his failures, as he put it, in office. meantime, we're looking at early voting resumed here in d.c. and maryland, but up in the flood ravaged areas of new jersey and new york as you're well aware, they're looking at a lot of different options to make sure people can actually get out to the polls on tuesday. lynn? >>> tracie pots in washington, tracie, thanks. >>> as we had mentioned, the obama christie meeting has been great. they've delivered biting comments about the other and now they're putting citizens above politics. it is interesting because just a few hours before their meeting former florida governor and romney supporter jeb bush had this to say on the stump. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his e

storm victims. with just five days left before the election, president obama is heading become out on the campaign trail. he will visit wisconsin, nevada and colorado today. governor mitt romney is in virginia, after campaign iing i florida on wednesday. jan crawford filed this report this morning as the romney campaign headed north. >> to say that the hurricane threw a wrench in the presidential election is really an under dstatement. think about it. less than a week to go, the race this tight. both sides suspending campaigning and romney yesterday back on the campaign trail but muting his attacks on the president. and the president yesterday getting to do something romney could not. act as comforter in chief. >> we're going to help you get it all together. i promise, you're going to be okay. >> reporter: he met with victims and officials, reassuring that the government will be there to help. >> we're going to get this whole thing -- we're going to get this whole thing set up. >> reporter: at his side republican governor chris christie, a romney supporter. to show he was moving be
, pennsylvania, virginia, florida, wisconsin. obama's campaign, ohio, wisconsin, iowa, virginia, colorado, i feel like i'm repeating myself, what do they tell you? >> yes, and it's important to underscore how unusual this is, it is a firewall for a democrat. in the last 90 years, kate, only one democrat has run even one point better than in ohio, so what you see in your poll today and in all of the polling in ohio, is in those critical midwest upper battlegrounds, i think ohio and wisconsin are the inner circle, they're running better among working class white voters there than anywhere else in the country. that explains the lead, the gender gap. some auto bailout been the bane story has more. we have two races going and the president is counting on different coalitions of each. >> gloria, what strikes you about the tone in the final days. >> the campaign is ending kind of the way it's been, which is, it's sort of -- this has not been a campaign of great vision, of great talk about the future, of what you want to do for the country. this has been a campaign of negative adds, very polarized elect
, florida, ohio, virginia. obama is winning in all three of those states now and by some margin, number one. number two, the job approval rating has been up over 50% now for four months. >> dana: that is not accurate. >> andrea: another thing, after all the negative ads, bob, mitt romney's favorability jumped up higher. the negative advertisements to paint him as a felon, bully and tax evade dor haven't worked. >> bob: his momentum stopped last week. >> andrea: how do you see that? early voting -- >> bob: wait. early voting -- >> andrea: significantly gone in his favor. don't give me that. early voting was so prominent for president obama. and liberals took the network touting it in 2008. >> bob: we'll talk about this after tuesday. >> eric: one more number came out today, unemployment, disturbing. among blacks 14.3%. jumped again. >> dana: the closing argument -- >> eric: very funny. >> dana: sorry. hel >> eric: they are telling us that cbs is announcing that the new york city marathon is officially -- >> dana: i was just going to say that. we're done. several developments on the libya ter
me give you a couple of points here. ohio, romney has in its 50-48. florida, romney 50, obama 49. north carolina -- neck and neck. so ultimately it seems to me this bill could go either way. and we will be watching. with this vote, decided on the basis of a single news story? could it be something that breaks over the weekend? something that carries the momentum? >> anything that moves a couple of hundred or a couple of thousand votes in any one of these battle ground states can determine the election. absolutely. my fear, and this is not as a pollster, but an american is that instead of one court case that we had in florida in 2000, we can have multiple court cases. this is just so close. gerri: i hope that is not the case. we have to go. thank you for being with us. we'll be right back. >> thank you.

the vict victor, it was over. >> florida may be too far a bridge for barack obama but by putting bill clinton and all the things you mentioned, it means the romney campaign has to pay attention for it. >> let's talk about "the washington post" editorial today because it gets to the question of fouling. of breaking the rules and going basically saying things that even the totally independent people say is dishonest. here it is, quote, "washington post," through all the flip-flops there's been one consistency in the campaign of republican presidential nominee mitt romney. a contempt for the electorate. how else to explain his refusal to disclose essential information, how other than an assumption that voters are too dim to remember what mr. romney has said across the years and months, to account for his breathtaking ideological shifts. within limits all candidates say and do what they have to say and do to win. mr. romney by contrast seems to be betting voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to hook lined the curtain. a wiz 5rd of oz reference. >> he's
're spending. both of these candidates tomorrow and monday. obama is going to new hampshire, florida, ohio, wisconsin, iowa, romney going to ohio, new hampshire, pennsylvania, virginia, i guess where they are underscores what they need to do. >> sure. it doesn't exactly look like your summer vacation, does it? they're all in ohio multiple times. >> and that one extra hour we'll get tonight, they'll probably go to ohio. >> but obama needs -- they both need ohio. let's stipulate that. but he's got a midwestern strategy. if he can do ohio, wisconsin and iowa, he believes he could put it away. romney of course ohio. but he needs virginia and florida. needs if he is going to get his path to 270 and that's why you see him in these two states. >> one thing i mentioned to jessica yellin earlier, the obama crowds in these final few days are no where near where they were four years ago. they were huge four years ago. i don't know if that's a concern to them. i don't necessarily buy that. i think they would love to have tens of thousands of people show up as they did four years ago. that's not happen
for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was declared the victor, it was over. >> florida may be too far a bridge for bara
plante report that president obama cancelled that event this morning in orlando, florida, but bill clinton picked up the slack and held that rally now. now we know that bill clinton will be in seven states in the coming week. how much is that a help to the obama team? >> well, without putting too fine a point on it you can imagine the situation in which that helps quite a lot. bill clinton having received better reviews at the democratic convention than the sitting president. bill clinton is hugely popular in the democratic base. so getting those crowds out is important because in the states they take them from the events to the polling places and you grab them and you say, come knock on doors with me this weekend. spend more time volunteering to get these votes out. so it's important that the gathering function of these events continue to happen. and with bill clinton being a big draw he's the best surrogate barack obama could have in these crucial states. >> now, bill clinton was in connecticut yesterday and he had this to say about the storm. he said we're
. obama's going to visit colorado, iowa, wisconsin, ohio, virginia, new hampshire, and florida. and an almost identical tour for romney excepts he swaps florida in favor of, get this, pennsylvania. very interesting. now you're going to be looking, there it is, live pictures of westchester, ohio, where a mitt romney rally is under way. tens of thousands there, and lines to come into the rally stretch out for six blocks. this is interesting. does team romney see an opening there? let's talk here now is democratic strategist robert shrum, columnist for "the daily beast" and ed rogers, republican strategist and former bush 41 deputy assistant. gentlemen, welcome back. >> good to be here. >> i want to begin with this thought. not the jobs thing. the jobs thing is too inconclusive. what is so interesting is the aftermath, the immediate aftermath of the hurricane has turned out to be far worse, difficult. people die. gasoline lines. 1970 style stuff. somebody has to bear the blame for that even though it may be unfair. people are in an ugly mood about the aftermath of this storm, bob
the polls except rasmussen, who has the race tied at 49. florida, all the policy out this week has obama leading romney, but very close. and in the commonwealth, up 5 points but cbs has the president up by two. north carolina, rasmussen has romney up by 6 and survey usa has the governor leading by 5. new hampshire, new england college has obama up by 6 over mitt romney. last week rasmussen had romney up by 2. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we look at is the head-to-head number. the last three consecutive polls, excluding the two you mentioned were at 48. that's a sign of vulnerability. obviously you have seven candidates on the ballot. i think those polls that had the plus four, plus five overstated obama's support because they overcounting
leading by 2 in ohio, 48-46. colorado, they have romney up by 3. 50-47. but a cnn poll has 50-48, obama. nevada, all the polls have the president lead bug it is close. same thing in wisconsin. president is ahead in all the polls except rasmussen, who has the race tied at 49. florida, all the policy out this week has obama leading romney, but very close. and in the commonwealth, up 5 points but cbs has the president up by two. north carolina, rasmussen has romney up by 6 and survey usa has the governor leading by 5. new hampshire, new england college has obama up by 6 over mitt romney. last week rasmussen had romney up by 2. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we look at is the head-to-head number. the last three consecutive polls, excluding the

florida got hit by a terrible storm and president obama was the first person to go down there and disperse funds. at the i forget, it was the governor of florida, i forget his name but he was republican and he embraced the president and shook his hand and hugged him. and right after that, the whole republican party pretty much disregarded and got rid of that guy. host: you talking about governor charlie christ? caller: yeah. he became an independent and he was at the democratic convention and gave a news speech. but if this guy do anything good or bad, he's going to be criticized for it and it's a sad thing because the people is the only people that surf. we are the people that are surfing. he hasn't been able to get a thing passed since he's been in office. he's the only president been told he was a one-term president. and they dam calleded him a -- host: don't use that language on the air. we'll go on to another caller in a moment. let's look at what the romney campaign is doing in response to the storm. home romney was supposed to be in virginia. and a tuesday event in virginia headline
